I personally prefer pickling lime (calcium hydroxide) when water glassing my farm fresh eggs because it is more commonly used in the food processing industry. There are many brands of pickling lime on the market, however my favorite is Mrs. Wages pickling lime. It comes in a very convenient one-pound resealable package, and as you will soon learn, a little goes a long way!

Use this produce when home canning as well as water glassing freshly laid eggs. It is perfect for pickling cucumbers the old-fashioned way for extra crispness and flavor! Makes Cucumber Lime Pickles (recipe on each bag), Green Tomato Pickles, Watermelon Rinds and Citron Pickles.

Food grade calcium hydroxide with no additives or preservatives.



My online store is now an Amazon Affiliate storefront. The small commissions I earn will not cost you anything but will help me offset my costs so I may continue to create new and exciting canning recipes. Thank you for your continued support.
